Ride the train hear love stories of the Underground Railroad
Join National Park Service staff and costumed volunteers as they explore the complexities of the Underground Railroad through the lens of love.
Slave owners justified splitting plantation couples by claiming that slaves felt little pain at losing a mate and cared little for lasting relationships. Heartbroken slaves watched as their loved ones were sold on the auction blocks and many ran away to search for them. In this participatory program help assist a runaway slave in searching for their true love.
